Given the temperatures in Mankato area, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Mankato area or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one package. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
- Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
